Sweet Grass Community Foundation provides micro-grants to address unexpected, urgent, or one-time expenses that arise and affect a local organization's ability to fulfill its mission/goals. To be eligible for funding, an organization must be a 501(c)3, government entity, or other IRS recognized charitable entity providing services to residents of Sweet Grass County.
Requests for recurring expenses, travel expenses, general operating expenses, routine maintenance, or for projects that have been previously funded by SGCF are discouraged. Micro grants will not fund retroactively. Micro grants do not fund payroll expenses.
Applications are available through our online process - https://www.grantinterface.com/Home/Logon?urlkey=sgcf
Funds will allow us to update one of our rescue trucks. The new truck is fully equipped for our needs featuring a utility body so we can organize our gear better, making us more efficient and safer on rescue scenes. It also comes with a full emergency lighting package and mobile radio which saves us the cost of having to purchase and install those separately.
